Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber could face six months in jail if charged and convicted in the alleged assault of a photographer.

The Los Angeles County Sherriff’s department has turned the criminal battery investigation over to prosecutors, website TMZ reported.

The paparazzo was allegedly following Bieber while he and girlfriend Selena Gomez were at The Commons mall on Sunday.

As Bieber attempted to leave the mall, he and the photographer allegedly got into a scuffle.  The photographer called 911 but by the time police arrived, Bieber and Gomez had left.

The photographer was treated and released from a local hospital. He later filed a police report naming Bieber in the altercation.

Police have yet to interview Bieber, who is currently in Norway.
